Knoq is a platform designed to manage door-to-door sales and cause-based canvassing. The company's application identifies the best prospects and uses that data to create a route for canvassers and salespeople doing outreach in a given area. Knoq says their data is derived from 1,000-plus variables, including demographics, values, emotional sentiments, opinions and behavior. Top investors include Haystack VC and Initialized Capital.

Note: Knoq is formerly known as Polis.
